This review is from: Up (Single-Disc Edition) (DVD)
Some versions of the UP movies which are currently on the shelves of many stores do not have English subtitles or captions for the Deaf even though this is advertised on the case. This is not typical of Disney to distribute movies of substandard quality and to allow false advertising.
About 10% of people in America rely on English captions/subtitles to be able to follow the movies comfortably. By not including those captions/subtitles, Disney is denying a significant market from being able to equally enjoy the high quality Disney movies. Since the typical Disney movies are meant to be watched by everyone in the family, certain family members will be left out of the family entertainment experience.
The right thing for Disney to do now is to offer a recall and DVD replacement with the audio and subtitles which were promised on the case. Such actions will ensure the loyalty and respect of millions of Americans and continue Disney's commitment to diversity and inclusiveness.

Have you contacted Disney? I would certainly hope they would provide that as needed. It does not affect me personally, but I would like to know. I agree that for those who need it, that is very important and I would be upset if I purchased a movie and could not enjoy it because it was advertised to have something it did not.

Wow. That is a valid complaint. Some peaple rely on subtitles because certain disabilities make it so they need them to enjoy a movie. Just like J. it doesn't effect me personally, but ya still have to be considerate of those who need that it. Advertising , then not having it is inconsiderate.
